During the dispersal of Palestinian protests in various parts of the occupied West Bank, the Israeli military wounded 79 Palestinians, including five with live bullets.
Palestinians tried to hold protests against the construction and expansion of illegal Jewish settlements.
According to eyewitnesses, Israeli security forces fired tear gas, plastic and live bullets. The Palestinians, in turn, threw stones at the soldiers.
According to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society, as a result of the actions of the Israeli military in the Beit area in Nablus, 69 people were injured, including five with combat bullets and 24 with plastic bullets.
Another 10 people were wounded by plastic bullets in the Beit Dejin area of Nablus.
Protests against illegal Jewish settlements were also held in the Kafr Kaddum area in the city of Qalqiliya.
Palestinians hold protests against the expansion of illegal Jewish settlements and the construction of the Separation Barrier (Wall of Shame) in Jerusalem every Friday in and around Nablus.
There are over 250 illegal Jewish settlements in the West Bank of Jordan, which Israel occupied in 1967.
More than 400,000 Jewish settlers living in these areas further complicate the lives of Palestinians living under occupation in the West Bank.
According to international law, all Jewish settlements located in the occupied territories are considered illegal.
